In-home and online music instruction for kids and adults in Fort Mill, SC and surrounding areas
About our Guitar Lessons for Kids
We believe learning the guitar should be enjoyable and rewarding! We team up with our students' families to:
Inspire students to practice and maintain the necessary discipline and habits, encouraging them to utilize all their potential so they can excel in learning the instrument.
Read and play various genres of music varying all the way from classical to modern pop, along with creating their own pieces with the tools provided in the art of composition.
Cultivate a passion for music, and bring them excitement and an aspiration to learn.
Beginning Lessons for Kids
We make learning guitar fun from the very first lesson!
For our younger students, we incorporate several music theory games, a repertoire based strictly on the musical interest of the student, and a basic structure so they can remain interested and be willing to practice something they can truly enjoy!
All beginner guitar players learn all the notes on the fretboard, and how to apply them to scales, chords, reading music, writing music, and much more.
The youngest of students have the opportunity to attend and perform re-occurring student recitals throughout the year, giving them all the tools to perform confidently in front of their families and peers, along with having a fun environment to play the instrument! The instructors will be there to accompany the students with anything they need (if any accompaniment is needed) for their picked pieces of music.
Intermediate Lessons for Kids
Once a guitar student has the foundations and discipline of regular practice:
Our instructors begin introducing more advanced and in-depth musical study. Along with this comes original composition application using the advanced theory, arrangement, production, and all skillsets learned prior to the intermediate level.
Ear training is taken to the next level, where a student learns to play pieces of music strictly using their ear. All of the theory learned prior will be applied so that they can pair their ear with their knowledge to have a firm understanding of what theory ‘sounds like’ in context. This is one of the most fun things kids look forward to in the intermediate level of study!
Advanced Lessons for Kids
Advanced guitar lessons for kids offer:
The study of the art of improvisation, utilizing more complex forms of music such as jazz, blues, and R&B. From this, students will build a solid confidence playing those ‘last minute gigs’, and put on a professional level performance every time!
Goal oriented practicing is key at this level. Students will learn to manage their practice time effectively with goals as the basis. This helps establish a professional music career in an organized and effective manner.
Advanced studies and techniques of production both for performances along with studio productions.
Music business studies, so that the students can walk into the music industry with all the tools of the trade to market their work and their music with courage.
Guitar studies and material at this level extend to the undergraduate degree level of a music college.
We teach adults too!
You’re never too old to learn the guitar! Our approach to teaching adults is a bit different (although contain similar study material mentioned at the younger student level). We tailor our lessons to the goals and interests of the adult and what they would like to accomplish in their lessons. Our in-home lessons can create a comfortable learning environment to help you:
Read and play sheet music to any of your favorite songs.
Gain the confidence needed to perform in front of an audience and provide a stellar musical experience!
Unleash your creativity with your own musical compositions and productions.
Beginning Lessons for Adults
It’s never too late to learn how to play the guitar. Creative Melodies offers flexible music lesson programs tailored to every individual who wishes to learn. We provide accelerated programs involving music theory, compositional techniques, ear training, and musical analysis so they may play their favorite songs in no time.
Intermediate Lessons for Adults
We love encouraging the creativity of all our guitarists! Lessons at this level are highly customized and include instruction in musical composition, ear training, expression, theory, and sight reading.
Advanced Lessons for Adults
Advanced guitar lessons for adults provide everything mentioned under the “Advanced Lessons for Kids” topic, but with more application and research on both musical concepts and the entertainment industry. Students at this level will learn to effectively establish important connections, advertise properly using social media, and put on self-promoted, produced, professional and raved about performances for their family, friends and fans… In the studio and on the stage every time!
From our students:
“The kids are truly enjoying your lessons. I find Ayush going to the piano sometimes 2 or 3 times on the weekend (on his own!). We love having music in own house and I love that you are nurturing that in my kids.”
— Sweta from Matthews
